HealthCarePoint Establishes BlueCloud Europe, Expanding Investigator Sites’ Ability to Connect with Sponsors, CROs, Universities and Other Industry Stakeholders Worldwide

BlueCloud office will be headquartered in Switzerland to help European members implement BlueCloud systems for their organizations.

BlueCloud® by HealthCarePoint (HCP) has expanded to Europe with major site networks recently adopting BlueCloud Systems, including Hospital La Paz Institute for Health Research in Madrid, Spain, the Slovak Research Center (SRCSK) in Trencin, Slovakia, and a growing number of independent and institutional investigator sites, sponsors, CROs, universities, educators, associations and other industry stakeholders.

This European expansion will complement its networking systems in the US, Puerto Rico, Central and South America, Australia, Asia and Africa, providing real-time global connectivity between sites, sponsors and CROs in a private, GDPR, CCPA compliant environment. While providing global consumer-privacy protection, BlueCloud also will ensure compliance with current laws and regulations, updating those requirements by regulators and government organizations as changes occur.

BlueCloud Europe reflects global recognition of the need to modernize an unsustainable global healthcare and clinical-research ecosystem. With BlueCloud networking systems in place, European members can more efficiently deliver, distribute, implement and track (DDIT™) their business and compliance programs and initiatives using an interconnected global network of 1.6 million healthcare professionals from thousands of healthcare and clinical research organizations.

Tigran Arzumanov, BlueCloud Europe manager, explains, “BlueCloud is a unique network, built not only to make clinical research and healthcare more efficient, but also to respect the privacy of its participants by giving individuals control over their professional information and providing connectivity between providers and consumers. The establishment of the European office reflects BlueCloud’s growing footprint in the region and our wish to be closer to our existing members, while also making it more efficient for new members to join.”

“We are very happy to be the part of this great modern international network!” says Michaela Vančová, clinical operations director for Slovak Research Center (SRCSK). “Finally, we do not need to wait ages until technology enters former Eastern Europe to increase trial pipelines, so our patients can participate and access the newest clinical trial treatments available. Our investigators are well-trained professionals with large patient databases who are eager to bring new treatments to the industry.”

“The BlueCloud DDIT™ mechanisms are able to facilitate necessary distribution of medical training, research standards, clinical scales and other protocols,” stated Dr. Blanca Fuentes Gimeno, Chief Unidad de ictus Associate Professor Department of Neurology, Hospital Universitario La Paz. “The spanish version of the PedNIHSS, developed by a panel of pediatric and adult stroke experts, continues its successful distribution by the BlueCloud International Education Network. IdiPAZ joined BlueCloud’s global movement for the standardization of accredited educational activities in October 2018 with a mission to facilitate the expansion of modern diagnostic tools like the Madrid-DIRECT scale and the international version of the PedNIHSS, beginning with the successful distribution and tracking of the activity with Spanish-speaking professionals.”

Al O. Pacino, president and co-founder of BlueCloud by HealthCarePoint explained, “Creating the global infrastructure necessary to strengthen stakeholders and equipping investigator sites and healthcare organizations with basic business and compliance technologies and education was vital in our European expansion. BlueCloud Europe makes it easier to meet demand for our DDIT mechanisms globally, bringing us closer to fulfilling our mission of leaving no patient behind. Changing the current global paradigm, including culture and establishment has been long overdue; patients cannot wait.”
